CCSwaps - Mystery Brocade Swap

Adrienne Goodenough hosted a Mystery Swap for CCSwaps (Creating Chaos!). The mystery was revealed and it was creating Brocade Clay pieces. For my partner, Maggi Grabowski, I decided to alter and decorate a little soap box I received last Christmas with some really sweet smelling soap in the drawers. I used Black Kato clay and had a ball making creating the brocade pieces and decorating the soap box.

Here Comes PeterCottonTail

Mother always made a beautiful and delightful Bunny Cake for Easter Dinner! It was always such fun and all of us kids thoroughly enjoyed it and always felt a little funny EATING that Easter Bunny! Well, my video shows the 2nd Generation in honor of Mother's Easter Cake. I don't know if Mr. Bunny will still standing tomorrow morning or even in one piece so I took pictures tonight, just in case. The cake is a Pineapply Moist Cake mix and the cake used is by Nordic Ware. Great Pan! Lots of work to get it done but lots more fun than work!

Lisa shares so much with all of us. Be sure to stop by her many websites, Ten Two Studios (, Go Make Something. She has beautiful collage sheets in her store.

Art & Soul Retreat 2009 - Asilomar

I am hosting a Fatbook Swap for the Art & Soul Retreat in Asilomar, CA in May, 2009. These are a couple of pages I have designed for the book. (The top page is for the Artists page.)

The theme of this Swap is "Dancing Through the Decades." Each artists will be selecting a decade and then select a favorite dance and music during that decade and can further enhance the theme by adding the fads, fashions, and culture during that period of time. I can't wait to see their pages!

I haven't finished the cover, yet. I have it all layed out but it is still a work in progress!
